Hey, I just received the R2dtoys.com newsletter and it lists the coming soon items and it lists the new Anakin Skywalker figure without a cloak!

A-Wing Fighter 25 Walmart exclusive
Sandcrawler TBA
Imperial Force Figure Set (4-pack)
Anakin Skywalker Speeder 12
Count Dooku Speeder 12
WalMart classic scene packs (Luke/Han, Leia/Chewy, Trash Compactor) 18
New basic figure YODA 6
New basic figure Anakin w/o cloak 6
A-Wing Fighter 25 Walmart exclusive

I kinda expected that we wouldn't get a cloak with this figure but I did hope for one. :(
I just hope that maybe we will get an interchangeable arm because I wouldn't really wanna have his bionic arm on all the time.
I still think this will be an awesome figure, the two basic Saga figures that we've had of Anakin in his Jedi gear have been awesome!
Hangar Duel still being the best saga figure so far :cool:
At least we can all stop hoping for a cloak for this figure... I think we'll get an Anakin Skywalker with a cloak next year though :)

I'm not as disappointed because I know that we're getting a new Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool:

Well, that confirms that the A-Wing is going to be a Wal-Mart exclusive here in the states. Makes sense, because Wal-Mart is one of the few stores that treats Hasbro and Exclusives with any respect. :)

I'm not to sure about the wedding Anakin having no cloak, is that the whole E-mail? Because everything that I have heard is that there will be a cloak with the Anakin: Wedding figure. Maybe they are getting it mixed up with another Anakin figure? :)

The could also be mixing up the 12" Anakin figure that has the interchangable arms, because it doesn't come with a cloak. I guess that we will have to wait and see. But I'm pretty sure as I said, that the Wedding Ani has a cloak. :)

Special Notice for loose collectors and those who absolutely MUST have their toys before anybody else:

In the coming few weeks we will be launching our new website and this offers more facilities, including our unique Discount Club and also our exclusive Pre-Release Club ! This all ties-in with those loose collectors out there ! Please keep watching....

The discount club allows you to receive a discount from EVERY order you place for 1 year (renewable, premium membership program). There will be further benefits and advantages too ! We will announce full details very soon.

The pre-release club means you subscribe to buy at least 1 of every figure, at the time we receive it (usually weeks ahead of general US release) for a reasonable fixed cost, PLUS you have the benefit of having the figures first and with no queue`s - more importantly, we guarantee C9+ condition every time !
Example, if we have 100 members and we receive 108 figures, there will be only 8 to sell on our website to the rest of the World ! As a club member, you receive priority and you are GUARANTEED your figure first, and at a fixed cost, for 1 year (renewable, premium membership program). You may also choose to buy 1 of every figure at general release date and this rusn true for 3.75" figures, 12" figures, ships/vehicles, or all items....you can tailor your needs !

The loose collector club means you automaticaly get 15% off any product because the packaging is not in collector-grade condition and we know you don`t care about that (renewable, premium membership program).

We are still deciding if its possible to combine these clubs to achieve maximum discount and loyalty benefits, it is looking good for you !

If he doesn't have a cloak, then that's stupid as hell.

It says that it's a basic figure and that's how much basic figures cost over here... it could be another Anakin because he does wear a cloak in the Wedding Scene, have you heard about another Anakin?
I know it's not the Anakin with the swoop bike because that looks like it's listed as the Anakin Speeder because it lists Dooku's speeder for the same price.

10-22-2002, 04:42 PM
Odd, they mention the Anakin, but none of the other new figures for 2003? Maybe there is going to be another new Anakin at the end of there year, that is not the Wedding version. That would explain a few things. :)

Here's the Destroyer Droid/Yoda case breakdown. There is 1 Anakin: Tatooine Attack packed in. Maybe they are confusing a new Anakin with this version. Hmm, confusing. But it makes sense that it's either the Tatooine Ani, or one we haven't heard of yet. :)

(3x) Destroyer Droid:Arena Battle, (3x) CloneTrooper: Republic Gunship Pilot, (2x) Yoda: Jedi Council Member, (2x) Jango Fett - Slave I Pilot, (1x) Anakin Skywalker: Tatooine Attack, and (1x) Count Dooku - Dark Lord

I wonder how they would make the cloak anyway, I think that the new Mace Windu cloak looks pretty dodgy.
I think the way they did Obi Wan Kenobi and Qui Gon Jinn Naboo from the Phantom Menace line were done really well.
I also like the Luke Jedi cloak from POTF2.
